#138 Dreamsicles Nativity

Acquired 1995

I purchased this darling set the day after Christmas at Long's Drug on Carpenter Road. I had this set on my gift list, but when it wasn't under the Christmas Tree, I decided to take care of the problem! Dreamsicles have been quite popular since about 1993. This precious nativity set, new for 1995, is the sweetest Dreamsicles ever from sculptor Kristin Haynes and it definitely will become a keepsake collection. The childlike figures are crafted from a blend of natural earths in hand-cast hydrostone. Each of the 15 pieces is hand painted with charming detail. Because I purchased the entire set, the Baby Jesus figurine is signed by the artist, Kristin Haynes. Purchase price, $139.
